Almond and peach muffins

Kick-start your fruit serving for the day with this great little breakfast muffin recipe. They have a natural underlying sweetness from the almond meal and banana but are not too sugary to start your day with. You can also try to change up the fruits to either pears or strawberries if you’re not a big fan of banana or peach.


Prep: 10 minutes – Cook: 25 minutes – Serves: 8 muffins


  • 1 1/8 cup (blanched) almond meal
  • 1/3 cup gluten-free self-raising flour

  3. In another bowl mix wet ingredients with 1/2 cup water until well combined.
